Israeli Opposition Leader Blasted for Secret Talks to Divide Jerusalem

Monday, June 20, 2016 | Tag Cloud Tags: , ,

(Worthy News) - Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid bashed opposition leader Isaac Herzog on Sunday for allegedly offering the West Bank and East Jerusalem to the Palestinians in secret talks with PA President Mahmoud Abbas in 2014-2015, calling it “dangerous and wrong.”

The criticism marked the opening of a rare rift between the two opposition parties, and came as Herzog has been pilloried by his own party for being an ineffectual leader in challenging the ruling coalition.

Lapid’s remarks came after Channel 10 reported Thursday that Herzog and Abbas worked through proxies ahead of Israeli elections last year to reach a framework for a future peace deal under which Palestinian refugees would receive financial compensation and the Western Wall would remain under Israeli control, Channel 10 news reported on Thursday.
